Ex-Torino Forward Francesco Graziani: “Romelu Lukaku Makes Lautaro Martinez Play Better”

Romelu Lukaku makes his Inter teammates better players, according to former Torino and Roma striker Francesco Graziani.

The Belgian hit two goals past Lazio on Sunday before setting up Lautaro Martinez for Inter’s third in a 3-1 win at San Siro.

Many have argued Lukaku’s contribution to Antonio Conte’s side goes way beyond the goals he scores and Graziani seems convinced that is the case.

“Unlike others, Lukaku makes his strike partners play very well too,” Graziani told Sport Mediaset last night.

“He makes Lautaro Martinez better, he plays for himself and for others.

“He beat Lazio on his own at the weekend, he played an incredible game.”

Lukaku has made 29 appearances in all competitions for Inter this season, scoring 22 goals and providing four assists.

His double against Lazio took the 27-year-old past the 300-goal milestone in his professional career, 56 of which have been scored for the Nerazzurri.

Lukaku’s goals in the victory over the Biancocelesti reportedly triggered a €1 million bonus payment from Inter to his former club Manchester United, following his club-record €65 million transfer in 2019.

He was described by former Inter striker Jurgen Klinsmann earlier this week as one of the world’s five greatest strikers at the moment.
